The first time I had banh canh in Vietnam, I can't remember the place I had it but it reminded me so much of ramen. Like a lot of people compare pho and ramen but banh canh seems more like ramen to me than pho!

These are all amazing and worth trying. Even though I felt a bit underwhelmed with some of the dishes, I am glad I tried them. I think I just got so spoiled with pho that nothing else impresses me quite as much.

I'm not a big fan of Pho. I find it to be too greasy and heavy.

I'm not a big fan of Vietnamese food, but I can appreciate a good bowl of pho. I'm not sure what it is about the soup, but it just doesn't do it for me. I much prefer the noodle soup. It's a lot more flavorful and filling.

I don't really like Vietnamese food either. I think it's really bland and not very exciting.
